Grilled Yellow Corvina

Korean food has taken the world by storm. From Korean crispy fried chicken to barbeques, kimchi, ice cream, and bingsu, everyone seems to love them. A healthy traditional Korean dish is grilled yellow corvina. The fish, more popularly known as, yellow croaker is a saltwater fish that is native to the Northwestern Pacific, particularly the Yellow and East China seas. Yellow corvina is an excellent source of high-quality proteins and omega-3 fatty acids. It also contains iodine, selenium, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, sodium, zinc, copper, manganese, and vitamins A, B, D, E, and K. The method of seasoning and preserving yellow corvina through salting and drying has been a practice in Korea for a long time. The preserved fish is locally called, gulbi. You can find packaged frozen gulbi in Asian or Korean grocery stores. As frozen yellow gulbi is already cleaned and salted, all you have to do is thaw it, pan-grill it in some oil and you are good to go. This dish is perfect with hot steaming rice and any vegetable side dish.


This recipe takes about 20 minutes to make. Serves 4.

• 4 frozen gulbi (salted and dried yellow corvina)
• ¼ cup of peanut oil


Thaw the frozen yellow corvina for 2 to 3 hours on the kitchen counter or in the fridge overnight.
Using clean kitchen shears, trim off the fins, gills, and tails of the fish.
Using a paper towel, wipe off excess moisture from the fish.
Heat oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
Arrange the fish in the pan.
Cover the pan with a lid and cook for 3 to 4 minutes over medium-high heat.
Remove the lid and carefully turn each fish over.
Cover the pan again with a lid and cook the other side for another 3 to 4 minutes.
Flip the fish over and this time, cook for 2 to 3 minutes uncovered.
Give the fish final turn and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes.
Turn the heat off and transfer the pan-grilled fish to a serving platter.

Ideas And Tips:

Aside from peanut oil, you can use corn oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, grape seed oil, vegetable oil, almond oil or walnut oil.

You can substitute yellow corvina with grouper or striped bass.

You can also broil the fish in a pre-heated oven. Rub oil on both sides of the fish. Place the fish on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Broil the fish for 5 minutes on each side.
